This is yet another version of asian salad. I love snow peas when they are in season so I cannot resist adding them to this salad. We enjoy this dish in the summer and spring for our main dish, and absolutely love it.

This recipe is a great summer recipe. I used rice noodles instead of soba. I did find the dressing a little bit too 'vinegar-y' so I would probably recommend more oil and less vinegar? I will definately make this one again though! Thank-you!
A fantastic meal that goes together very quick. I did make a few adjustments based on personal preference and what I had in the fridge. The pork tenderloin was precooked pork loin which was cut into strips and stir-fried in a small amount of the dressing along with the grated ginger. There was some extra grated ginger thrown in and the peppers, onions and snow peas were stir-fried just until crisp tender. Dressing was served on the side as suggested.
